Reservations for Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland Resort in California can be made beginning May 2. After first being announced in 2015, the official Star Wars theme park is nearly ready for business; the California location opens in May, while the one at Hollywood Studios in Florida opens in August. Along with The Rise of Skywalker ending the iconic Skywalker saga and The Mandalorian marking the franchise's first foray into live-action TV, Galaxy's Edge is just another indicator why 2019 will arguably be the biggest year for Star Wars.
Due to fervent demand to explore Galaxy's Edge, Disney moved the opening dates up (a second phase unveiling Rise of the Resistance takes place later this year), so anticipation is sky high. The park promises to be an extremely immersive experience, unlike anything fans have seen before. Surely, several people are planning to go as soon as they can, and now it's been revealed when they can lock in their spots.
According to Disney Parks Blog, reservations for Disneyland's Galaxy's Edge open May 2. They will be for people planning on staying between May 31 - June 23. Interested parties need to have an open Disney Account to place a reservation. There are no extra costs to make a reservation, but they'll obviously be in a finite supply.
Hopefully, Disneyland's servers are well-equipped to handle the incoming demand and increased traffic. Earlier this month, Avengers: Endgame crashed movie ticket sites when people rushed to reserve their seats, and it's easy to see a similar situation happening here. It would be a shame if fans missed out on an opportunity to go to Galaxy's Edge during the first month because of technical issues. There's no telling how fast the reservations will go, but they likely won't be available for long. Galaxy's Edge is Disney's largest theme park expansion ever, and everyone will want to be among the first to explore it.
But even if people can't book a reservation at the outset, it wouldn't necessarily be the worst thing in the world. It'll arguably be better to visit Galaxy's Edge later in 2019 when Rise of the Resistance opens and attendees can check out the full experience during their trip. And it's not like the theme park is temporary; this is a permanent fixture that will continue to evolve as more Star Wars content comes out. Still, there's nothing like being one of the first to walk through a new addition, and hopefully most of those who want to get reservations have great luck in doing so.
